Restorative Dentistry and Replacement Teeth

Crowns, Inlays, and Onlays

A broken or severely damaged tooth can be painful, unsightly, and susceptible to decay. Don't compromise your oral health. Let Dr. Lorio restore your smile with durable, natural-looking crowns, inlays, and onlays.

At Town Center Dental Care, we use all-ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), and gold crowns to restore integrity to structurally unsound teeth. Dr. Lorio will consider tooth location and stressors when determining the best material for your crown. Made to mimic natural dentition, a crown sits snugly atop a compromised tooth to return form and function. Your custom-made crown will fit seamlessly into your smile, matching the color and shape of your existing teeth.

If your tooth's damage doesn't require a full crown but needs more restoration than a filling can provide, we may suggest an inlay or onlay. Like crowns, inlays and onlays are custom dental solutions that restore integrity to compromised dentition. An inlay nestles inside the cusps, or bumps, of a tooth. An onlay covers one or more bumps.

Designing and placing your crown, inlay, or onlay takes two visits. After a thorough examination, Dr. Lorio will take an impression of your teeth and fit you with temporaries. Next, we'll send your data to a trusted lab where a skilled ceramist will hand make your custom dental work. After your crown, inlay, or onlay is completed, we'll remove the temporaries and permanently affix your new dental work. You'll leave our dental office with a strong, beautiful smile.

You deserve a great smile! Call today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Lorio. Our Wilsonville dental office proudly serves residents of Canby, West Linn, Tualatin, and surrounding areas.
